Default Ironworks Open meet write up

Did my 2nd meet today. Went better than expected honestly. My back was still tweaked, and I was sick at the beginning of the week. I weighed in at 277.



Squat:
1st: 208 kg (458.5 lbs) - Good lift, felt light
2nd: 227.5 kg (501.5 lbs) - Bit rough at the end, but got it
3rd: 232.5 kg (512.5 lbs) - Not even close. Bounced out of the hole, dropped right back in, lol
End result: 60 lb increase from last year

Bench:
1st: 117 kg (257.9 lbs) - Good lift, surprised how quick this went up.
2nd: 130 kg (286.6 lbs) - Good lift, this one went up easy too.
3rd: 137.5 kg (303 lbs) - Stalled about an inch from lockout. I debated between 296 and 303 for a while, figured what the hell. Would have had the 296 for sure.
End Result: 11 lb increase from last year

Deadlift:
1st: 205 kg (451.9 lbs) - Good lift, my back was not happy with me today though
2nd: 220 kg (485 lbs) - Good lift, back even more unhappy
3rd: 232.5 kg (512.5 lbs) - Good lift, did the bare minimum for a 1300 total
End Result: 37 lbs less than last year.

Overall: 3rd out of 6 in the SHW class.

Squat was right where I thought it would be. Very happy with that. I kicked myself for going with 303 over 296 on the bench, but no big deal. I know I can get there in no time. The deadlift was a disappointment. Last year I pulled 550 at this meet, and up until 2 months ago I was pulling 570+. My total was 1300.7, but I feel ok about calling it 1301, lol. I hit a personal goal of squatting 500+, and I totaled 1300 for the first time.

Well, the big 500 squat and then the miss at 512 (Misses take more out of you than good lifts) just might have sucked enough juice out of you that you didn't have quite as big of deadlift as you would have liked, but that is how meets go.

Color me impressed - 7 for 9 with some big numbers and a nice even 1300 is awesome!

PR for your total, and if you can come in healthy you'll destroy this total next time. Nothing wrong with that!

Congrats on the PR total. As others have said, it's tough to put together a squat and a deadlift PB at the same meet. 1400 next time!
